General :: Command Line - RSS Feed Reader From The Terminal?

Jun 12, 2010

Is there a way by which I can read RSS feeds from the terminal itself ? Something that would display the titles and a link to follow. Or maybe a software which works from within the terminal.

Ubuntu Networking :: Ad-Hoc Works With GUI But Not Command Line

Jul 17, 2010

I have two Roboards that need to communicate with one another. I have sucessfully installed Ubuntu 9.04 using the 386 kernel based on instructions found online.I can use the GUI to set up an Ad-Hoc network using one Roboard ("Create New Wireless Network"), call it Manet, and connect to "Manet" using the GUI on the other Roboard and ping/ssh between the boards. However, when I try to create the same wireless network using the command line using:

ifconfig wlan2 down
iwconfig wlan2 key off essid 'Manet' channel 5 ap any
ifconfig wlan2 up

I don't see any entry in iwconfig under "Cell". It keeps giving me "Not Associated"When I try to enter the same information on the other Roboard to try to connect to the network, it doesn't connect and under iwconfig, I don't even see any entry for ESSID. Could somebody please tell me why it works when I use the GUI and not the command line.

Ubuntu :: FTP Works Through Command Line - Not From Nautilus

Jan 28, 2011

Does anyone know why Nautilus would allow me to login to a server but not display any files, but when I log in via the 'ftp' command-line binary, it works and allows me to display all the files, make directories, etc.? I was able to login via FileZilla too.

Here's part of the log:
Code:

General :: Command Line - Use Find To Find Text Files?

Jul 15, 2011

Is there a way to specify to find that I only want text files (and not binary files)? Grep has an option to exclude binary files, so I thought find probably has a similar feature, but I've been unable to find it.

Server :: Crontab Fails But Command Line Works ?

Feb 19, 2011

Having an odd problem running a mysqldump via crontab. I have the script running on other servers and they work fine, so not sure how to actually troubleshoot, but the script looks like the following;

If I run it as a cronjob as root, it finishes in a second and a 20k file is there. If I run it from the command line as root it does the backup (takes a few minutes) but does complete the backup and can be unzipped and read successfully.

Ubuntu :: Boot Into Command Line Mode?

Mar 14, 2010

EDIT: sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop worked, not sure why it did not before. Sorry for the whining!

I need to boot Ubuntu into a non-x, command line mode. So I can install an nvidia driver for my new GeForce GTX 260 (I had a GeForce 7900 running on my Ubuntu system using the synaptic open source 185 driver for nvidia, but there is no driver except the one I downloaded just now from nvidia's site for the GTX 260 card). That requires there be no X session running, not even in a separate domain so to speak. There is no rescue mode in Grub2. Recover mode in Grub still boots an X session (Gnome). Alt+F1 appears to be a clean command line terminal but even that does not work because the nvidia driver installer script sees through that ruse and knows there is an active Gnome session. I tried sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop and that did not work. I tried ctr+alt+backspace and that did nothing.

What can I do? I tell you some days linux is just too frustrating, about to just toss the baby with the bath water and go back to Winblows. Bought a new graphics card today, and here I am stuck not being able to even install the driver from a command line prompt, geesh.

Software :: Command Line Browsing That Works With JavaScript Sites?

May 9, 2011

How can I verify JavaScript on a site (not on the same server) is working from command line access of the URL?

On checking some of what was written in 2005 I find most of it isn't still relevant (if it was then - I noted the w3m-js stuff mentioned in 2005 hadn't been updated since 2003).

Since then a couple of times I've looked into it but didn't make much headway but also didn't spend a lot of time on it. So far as I could tell from other posts I'd seen others hadn't either.

Recently I found out about Mozilla's SpiderMoneky js library and that it could be linked into elinks text browser and did same on my RHEL5 system.

I found Spidermonkey rpms in the EPEL (Fedora sponsored) repository:
js-1.70-8.el5.i386.rpm
js-1.70-8.el5.x86_64.rpm
js-devel-1.70-8.el5.i386.rpm
js-devel-1.70-8.el5.x86_64.rpm

I was able to download and install using rpm then compile elinks from source to include the above. Running elinks version after that shows the ECMAScript support is compiled into the new elinks binary. Also setting various ecmas* flags in the elinks.conf does have effect so clearly it is using them. (As opposed to another system where I use the original RHEL5 provided elinks RPM it complains about the ecmas* stuff being invalid options.)

It appears that by default it has this enabled but just for good measure I added:

set ecmascript.enable = 1.

Despite that when I pull up the page I see:

This product requires use of a browser that supports JavaScript

As a test I set the above to 0 on the off chance it was backwards and saw the same thing.

I then set the following:

set ecmascript.error_reporting = 1

On pulling up the page I now see a popup box:

Quote:

JavaScript Error:

A script embedded in the current document raised the

following exception:

TypeError: Window.Focus is not a function

OK

That seems to suggest that despite the earlier message about needing a browser that supports JavaScript that it is in fact executing at least one JS but that it is getting an error. Can anyone confirm that?

Does anyone have any idea what I�d need to do to deal with the Window.Focus message?

Essentially the site is a login page and even though I am able to input username and password after opening in browser when I tell it to POST it simply returns to the same login/password page.

And of course it doesn't have to be elinks/spidermonkey. I'd be interested in finding out if anyone knows a way I can verify a site that is running JavaScript is actually responding properly from command line rather than via a browser?

The SpiderMonkey stuff from Mozilla when compiled into elinks is supposed to do that but given my results Im not sure if it is or not.

Most of the documentation I can find on JavaScript stuff appears to be aimed at developers testing their own JS code from command line rather than accessing a web page with JavaScript.

Programming :: BASH - Works On The Command Line, Hangs As A Script?

Jul 16, 2010

I'm writing a Bash script to take IPTC keywords from a text file and write them, via Exiv2, to several (first batch is 100) JPEG files in a single directory. The script has one while loop inside another while loop, both terminated, but I'm pretty sure that's not my problem. I think it's how I'm incrementing the "counter" variable, although it could also be the method of parsing the text lines from the file (using cut with delimiters that have worked fine in simpler scripts).

Here's the code as I've worked it up to this point.

Code:

And yes, "keywords" checks out in Crimson Editor, Emacs GUI and nano as an ASCII file with UNIX line endings. No issues on that score.

Feeding each line consecutively into a terminal (excepting the exiv2 command) works fine: each variable echoes with the part of the text line used as a variable value as it should, even when the b variable is incremented the quick&dirty way (up arrow three commands and hit enter).

Running the above script in eval mode (sh -x) stalls after setting the b variable to one and reading in the first line of text. I'd like to know why. I'd also like some advice on another reliable method of parsing the read-in lines.

Fedora :: Access Machine In Command Line Mode

Apr 16, 2011

my fedora 14 did an automatic update tonight and on reboot it hangs displaying the "f" before the login in menu. The "f" is how I now feel.I do "fn+f2" as it is booting and it displays the sequence of loading items which report all is "ok" until it gets to "jexec services" and then it hangs.I do not know how to access the machine in command line mode and I am not sure what to do from here. I beleive the "jexec service" is a Sun Java item but I am not sure.

Ubuntu :: Start Up Graphical Mode From Command Line?

Sep 19, 2010

Is it possible to instruct Ubuntu to start up (GUI) Graphical User Interface mode from (CLI) Command Line Interface mode? In the old days, you can type "win" in DOS to get into Windows - something along that line. Is it possible for Ubuntu in this case?

Yes, you can reboot to switch between the modes, but shouldn't there be a command for this?

Ubuntu :: Computer Stuck In Command Line Mode

Oct 5, 2010

I just loaded up the Ubuntu 10.04 onto a newly scratch built computer. It went to the desktop after loading up and asking for my password. I then navigated to SYS>ADMIN>DRIVERS and preceded with download of recommended drivers for Nvadia G430 on-board display adapter. Restarted the computer to activate the new drivers and it's stuck in Command Line Mode. I tried Ctrl/Alt/F7 to escape, along with a bunch of other things but nothing will kick this puppy into the desktop.

General :: CIFS Mounting Works Via Command Line - Fails With Fstab

Dec 2, 2009

I've successfully mounted a network share with mount.cifs for the past 2 years using fstab with credfile.

[Code]....

Yesterday I moved this system to a new datacenter, but did not alter fstab or the credfile. The //server/share directory has IP rules in place, but this was updated with the new system IP while we moved the system. Now, I am mysteriously unable to automount //server/share. The local error is 13 (permission denied). The Windows server we are mounting returned a code that is defined as "username is valid but password is incorrect" Again - no changes (content or permissions) were made to my credfile or fstab entry. I've restarted netfs a few times, including rebooting the system twice. What is baffling is I can successfully mount //server/share via command line: Code: mount -t cifs //server/share /mnt/mycooldir -o username=foobar,password=1234

The username and passwords are identical in credfile and the mount options - I copied & pasted username / password from the credfile itself.

Programming :: Command Line Works - Won't Work From Inside Bash Script

Feb 16, 2011

Writing script to create backup of file by adding datetime to file name. Basically test for file presence if there, cp with datetime then rm original cp works fine from command line but get cannot stat `full path to file': No such file or directory

Code:

Here are the errors: cp: cannot stat `~/html/CVP_dadamail/.dada_files/.logs/errors.txt': No such file or directory rm: cannot remove `...': No such file or directory

The for statement is a placeholder as I have same file to backup out of several directories. using "bash -x scriptname" -OR- inserting echos, I can see I've constructed the strings properly. Believing it might be related to the hidden directories, I tried setting the shopt "glob" options to no avail.

Ultimately I'll add the other directories to the for loop and then run this from a cron job, so if you see potential pitfalls knowing I'm headed in that direction...believe construct would be

Fedora Networking :: Make The Ethernet Connection By Hand In The Command Line Mode?

Apr 12, 2010

The GUI for network configuration of Fedora is marvellous such that the configuration is almost fool-proof. But how can I make the connection by hand in the command line mode? It goes okay except the very last step. When I disconnect the eth0 interface from the right-hand side of the desktop GUI, I tested how to bring it back by command line but I failed. When disconnected, the ifconfig still shows the eth0 interface, with just the ip address portion changed.

I tried "ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.xx" to give it an ip address but the connection is still down even if the ifconfig shows an ip address for the eth0 interface. Then I tried "/etc/init.d/network restart" and "ifup eth0" and also "route add defaut gw 192.168.1.1" but none of these could accomplish the same work as a single click on the GUI to connect. I am very curious about how to do it in the terminal.
